(Aug. 2, 2012) -- The Nashville Sounds scored two runs in the top of the 11th inning and then held on for a 7-5 win over the Fresno Grizzlies Wednesday night at Chukchansi Park.
Sounds' left fielder Khris Davis broke the game open with a towering homer to right-center field off reliever Wilmin Rodriguez. Fresno native Sean Halton added an insurance run for Nashville later in the inning with an RBI single to left field.
Eric Farris led the Sounds, going 4-for-6 with three RBI. Farris hit a home run in the third to score the Sounds' first run, and his second RBI made it 4-2 Nashville in the fourth. Farris later added a run in the eighth on an RBI single that gave the Sounds a 5-4 lead.
Jackson Williams helped lead the Grizzlies' attack by going 2-for-4 with two RBI. Williams hit his 10th home run of the year in the fourth to bring the Grizzlies within one at 4-3.
Francisco Peguero tied it up, 4-4, in the seventh when he singled up the middle to score Brock Bond, who reached base five times with three singles, a double and a walk.
The Grizzlies' Nick Noonan led off the bottom of the eighth with a single to center field. Juan Ciriaco's sacrifice bunt advanced Noonan to second. Williams then punched a ball near the right-field line to score Noonan and tie the game at 5-5.
Grizzlies' reliever Mitch Lively struck out four in his two perfect innings of work. The right-hander has registered at least one strikeout in 13 straight appearances. Jean Machi also threw two perfect innings of relief for the Grizzlies and struck out three.
The Grizzlies and Sounds will meet again Thursday for a 7:05 p.m. game. Right-hander Eric Hacker of Fresno will face fellow righty Tyler Thornburg of Nashville.
